Real Wedding: Emily & Matthew at Oxleaze Barn, Lechlade
Hey Pesto Catering pride themselves in offering food that is always freshly prepared using locally-sourced, high quality ingredients, to ensure your Wedding Breakfast is simply spectacular! Here's a gorgeous real wedding that Hey Pesto Catering have chosen to share with us...
"First wedding of the season, and cue the rain! This in no way dampened the spirits at Oxleaze Barn, Lechlade. Open fires were roaring and fairy lights twinkling … what more could you want!
Emily & Matthew were combining Australian & English cultures, my favourite part being the table names! Data, Yoghurt, Aluminium … They are all words they disagree on the pronunciation of! The favours were also Penguins & Tim Tams. GENIUS!
The ceremony took place in front of the beautiful Oxleaze fireplace and it was so lovely and relaxed. The Bride & Groom both wrote a letter to lock in a box with a bottle of wine, ready to open on their 10 year anniversary. What was even better was, they both forgot to get the letters! After some hunting, they were safely locked away for future enjoyment!
The guests then made their way to the Milling barn to mingle and enjoy canapes & cocktails. Shortly after everyone was sat down and ready for the glorious 3 course Wedding Breakfast, which was joined by a huge treasure hunt game which each table competed with each other to gain keys to open a big mystery box... the food was full of laughter and bemusement, and finally the code was cracked!
The Evening was filled with music, dancing and drinks... who can ask for more!"

We are presuming that it's not only our stomachs grumbling and mouths watering at the very thought of that delightful menu! It sounds like Emily and Matthew put great attention to detail to make their wedding day personalised and special to them - we love the sound of the treasure hunt challenge and the locking away of letters!
It's no surprising that the rain couldn't possibly spoil this gorgeous day. Here is what the happy couple had to say following their wedding day... " Thank you a million times for putting on such a great spread for our wedding day. From the start, Georgie was an amazing point of contact and guided us through everything. She was the one who suggested our day plan when we hadn’t even thought about it! Canapes: delicious. Main meal: delicious. Evening food: delicious. All professionally-dressed, enthusiastic staff, immaculate presentation of food. We just had to pick what we wanted and they sorted everything else. Would highly recommend Hey Pesto for any event! "
